WS Atkins’ planning looks to avoid the big project pitfalls

The company we are focusing on today has handled the structural engineering for Burj al-Arab, the six-star hotel in Dubai that looks like a steel and concrete sail; it has also designed the new metro transport system for Mecca; and it has been involved in creating the ‘Wizarding World of Harry Potter’ in Universal Studios in Orlando.

If all that is not impressive enough, it had a fist in upgrading Dublin’s M50.

With such a body of work, you’ve got to think WS Atkins is a bit special.

Atkins, an 80-year-old UK-based company, is a highly-rated engineering consultancy, involved in designing, planning, project management, consultancy services to multiple industries. It employs 17,000, operates worldwide, has revenues of £1.75bn, a market value of £1.25bn and has been listed on the London Stock market for almost 20 years.
